HighSkids Posted October 13, 2006 Report Share Posted October 13, 2006 Turbine on a 206LR was timed out so we swapped in the new one. Pushed it out for the leak check and everything was going great until about 1 to 1.5 minutes into the run heavy smoke started to billow out of the exhaust. We shut it down immediately. It burnt approx 1.5 litres of oil in about 15 to 20 seconds, which means a whole lot of smoke. After a thorough check of anything to do with the oil system we tried another run, but we got the same results. Same time into the run, same amazing discharge of smoke, same oil consumption. After a nap and some breakfast we swapped another turbine(that was designated for another machine still 50hrs away) and the problem disappeared. Any ideas? We're still waiting to hear back from the O/H shop. The oil flow check before the initial run was 110cc. And no, I didn't have a camera on hand.
